Grant Judkins's insight:

Many women went to Washington D.C. to protest immigration laws. They wanted laws that made it easier for immigrants to gain full citizenship and keep families together. About 200 women came to this event. Over 100 women were arrested.

Many women immigrants protest about different issues with our policies on immigration in the United States. This is important, because we are generous enough to allow these immigrants into our country and to abide by our laws. They shouldn't have any reason to be fighting against us.

Corin McKinstrey's comment, October 2, 2013 11:58 AM
I think that this topic is very interesting. I do think that women from foreign countries should be involved in our society but they should be legal citizens. I agree that we are open enough to let them into our country and I think that if they want to live here they should gain proper citizenship and abide by the laws and standards that we have set for our country.

The Changing Geography of Asian America: To The South And The Suburbs - Forbes

The Changing Geography of Asian America: To The South And The Suburbs - Forbes | Asian Immigration | Scoop.it

By Joel Kotkin, contributor to Forbes.

 

This entrepreneurial class of immigrants are increasingly settling in younger, growing cities in the South, and spreading out from traditional inner-city hubs to the suburbs.

 

“There’s nothing wrong with New York that a million Chinese couldn’t cure,” the urban geographer George Sternlieb once quipped. It may be an exaggeration, but rising Asian immigration has indeed been a boon to many communities and economies across the country.

Over the past 30 years the number of Asians in America has quadrupled to 18 million, or roughly 6% of the total U.S. population. But their economic impact is much greater. They are far more likely to be involved in technology jobs than other ethnic groups, constituting over 20% of employees in the nation’s leading technology companies, four times their share of the overall U.S. workforce. And then there’s the line of connections to the most dynamic economies on the globe: India, South Korea, Singapore and, of course, China.

Grant Judkins's insight:

In the past 30 years Asians in America has quadrupled. Their impact on the community is great. Asians are more likely to be involved in technology jobs. Over 20% of employees in the nation's leading technology companies are Asians.

I think that this article is very good. I like how it specificly tells you about how the immigration rate affects the religion of the U.S.. Especially narrowing down on what percentage of religion the immigrants are and what they possibly were before coming to the U.S..

I think this is a very good article, it tells and makes us aware of how the immigration is affecting us and the US people. It shares certain information that can be very helpful.

Central American immigrants are a part of that, but so are immigrants from Asia and Europe," Lopez said.
Grant Judkins's insight:

The population of undocumented immigrants in the US is rising. Central American immigrants are the main people but Asian and European Immigrants is up there. The number of Mexicans apprehended at the border is down from previous years.

It is interesting that the Mexicans think that the border is being less controlled than usual and I wonder why they think that. It makes sense if they think its down that the population\ is on the rise.
Trent Schippers's comment, October 3, 2013 1:08 PM
Illegal immigrants are hurting this economy. They cost the government tax-payer money and most don't pay taxes. Their getting a free ride here in the U.S., and it isn't helping us any.

Grant Judkins's insight:

The new Immigration bill that was passed would affect many immigrants and their families. Nathanel Lowe is talking to people and telling them about the new bill. He is trying to educate people that don't really know what it is about. I think it is good that he is doing this because the bill directly affects his family.

Asian Americans go door to door and ask Americans to help them keep the government from changing the immigration reform laws. This article is important, because it not only shows how our government treats our immigrants, but also shows us how much coming to America and being accepted means to the immigrants.

Asians drive immigration to the United States. This article is important, because it shows how much immigration effects the U.S. After people realize that immigrating to the U.S. was a great decision for another family, they decide that maybe it would be good for theirs too. 

Marlee Morton's curator insight, September 27, 2013 12:24 PM

This article shows how much the numbers of Asain immigration verses other races that come into the U.S. I found it interesting because I didn't know that the numbers were that large, and just how fast they grow.
